include HL and all calls beginning  with the letters  R, S, T  and U.   These
QSLs are in the works and should be released before 1 October. Because of the
pirate problems with Japan, some 200 JA envelopes are still on hold but those
will also be released before 1 October. The QSL team will begin on 1  October

outstanding QSL issues at that time,  including cards lost or damaged in  the
mail. [TNX N4GN]

thoughts to QSLling. All mail received is being stored in boxes until he  can
get to them.
